No problem with the download. Uncompressed the .rar file with TugZIP as recommended by Ucrew. Then used Alcohol120 to burn the image onto a CD-R using the slowest speed....which was 4X on my CD burner.

Did the usual upgrade....put the key in position 1, press accept, eject the Map DVD from the drive....put in the CD with V27 OS in it....then let it upgrade....the screen will go blank for about 5-10 seconds, then you'll see the upgrade screen....upgrading software.....then it will pop out the CD on its own....you should remove the CD....go back in the car and press "OK" to reboot the NAV system....when it is loaded up, then put back in your DVD Map disk.

Then press "Menu"....go to Setting....if you see SW 4-1/70, then you have V27 loaded up....However, now you'll have to hold on the MENU button for about 5-10 seconds....now you are in the "service menu" and using the right knob and turn it all the way to the bottom (it will scroll) and you'll see "Perspective"....select it and turn it on and then hit your MENU button to escape.

Now, you can go select "Perspective" in the Map positioning option.

Again, thanks to xoutpost.com!

Thumbs up

Thanks for this update , I did it without any problem. I even change the logo and put in the Dutch language. The only thing I regret is that I now lost the GB language because my menu shows me " GB - F - D " ( GB= English & F= French & D = German) and at first I changed the French language to the Dutch but the whole menu stays in French and since I do not understand or can read this language I was forced to do it to the English language. Is there a possibility to change the menu that it for example shows me " GB - US - D " and I can change the GB or US in Dutch and keep also the English language ?

Edit: Thanks to Lebowski, my problem is solved.

Here at Russia, i have a problem with Megaupload. They have only 500 slots for all Russia. This slots are always busy. My antivirus doesnt give me to download megaupload adware (they promise, that with adware there will be no slots limit), so, before uninstalling AV, i decided to ask here, if someone could upload it to my fast FTP, please, write me PM. Thank you.

I gotta ask... what good is v27 with perspective view? That view has no street names other than major highways. Admittedly the view looks cool, but i find it completely useless. Are there plans to add street names to it? (at least the upcoming streets in the direction you are traveling)

Not sure if you were first but I also have it up and running.

Much better than previous views....

Are there any other changes apart form the 3D view?

Thanks very much!
